5 corrected entries in Putting Out Fires

Putting Out Fires - S1-E2

Corrected entry: How was Nick able to save the little girl while still dying himself? We know that when he saved the boy the first time the day happened, he became trapped when the floor below him collapsed, and he told the boy to go on without him. Tru told him about the floor the second time, so he and the boy made it out safely. Then Nick went back in for the girl, and all we know is that the girl was saved and he still died. There is no explanation of what happened to somehow kill him after he saved the girl.

Correction: The is no explanation given in the episode but there are plenty of possible explanations of how someone could die in a burning building without any protective gear.

Putting Out Fires - S1-E2

Corrected entry: The second time Tru goes through the day, she says that the fire truck will be delayed by traffic (she saw the flooded fire hydrant the first time), and realizes that's why Nick had to go into the building without his equipment. But the fire truck is actually there by the time they get outside.

DavidK93

Correction: But the problem was that they weren't there by the time he had to go inside. When he gets out on the second day it is already past the time he got stuck on the first day, so there's no problem there. On the second day he rushes back in too stubborn to wait - the other firefighters will physically stop Tru but not one of their own.

Putting Out Fires - S1-E2

Corrected entry: On the second walk through of the day, Tru describes the fire (which hasn't happened yet) to Davis. From this description, Davis (who, bear in mind, is the supervisor at a morgue and not a criminal forensics expert) is able to provide more accurate information about the fire and its cause than were the emergency workers who brought the bodies to the morgue the first day, several hours after the fire actually happened, by which time some actual police investigation had presumably occurred as well.

DavidK93

Correction: Davis is an MD and performs autopsies as part of his job, so would be very familiar with the forensics, the morgue is directly beneath the sheriff's office after all. The people bringing the bodies in are not emergency workers, they work directly for the morgue, and Marco stated earlier that he just picks up the bodies he doesn't solve crimes, so he wouldn't have gotten that much information from the police.

Putting Out Fires - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Tru has lunch with Harrison the second time she goes through the day, she tells him that it will rain at three. This is information she presumably has from the first iteration of the day. Three o'clock passes without comment, and without rain.

DavidK93

Correction: We don't actually see three o'clock on either day. A short summer rain would leave no evidence after an hour or so, and wouldn't be worth discussing, especially with a building burning down at five o'clock.

Putting Out Fires - S1-E2

Corrected entry: The first time Tru goes through the day, there is a scene with her and Meredith unpacking glassware. The scene serves only to provide exposition about Tru's mother. But why are they unpacking glassware in a house that appears to be newly moved into? We haven't been told about anybody moving into a new house, and there's no reference to moving or the glassware before or after. It doesn't fit in properly at all.

DavidK93

Correction: Somebody moved, or bought new glassware, and we don't know who. This doesn't really seem like a mistake, just leaving out information that isn't really that important to the story.

Mistakes

Throughout the series, auxiliary characters are always far too willing to give all kinds of information to Tru. Doctors and registrars constantly give her privileged information about patients and students. Tru is often able to retrieve information like addresses and phone numbers from people's service and utility companies, when normally you must verify your own information before they will even talk to you about your account. Of course there can't be an episode if Tru doesn't quickly find the person who asked for her help, even though she doesn't usually know much more than their name, but it's still a bit conspicuous.
